Why sail around the world?

Every humans soul yearns for adventure, and longs to make a difference in this world. Why not try and do it all together. Why is it that life passes faster as one gets older? Physically, time always passes at exactly the same speed. The only difference is one”s perception of it. So why dose our perception change? I believe it has to do with learning, routine and inspiration in our life: Junior school, the dance, grade 12, graduation, learning to drive, first kiss, falling in love.You are learning all the time, not only academically, but also as a person. You are finding yourself in the midst of an ever changing world, and thus the passage of a year is paramount. Years are measured through personal growth and experience rather than by minutes and seconds…On the other side of the coin, appreciate the average adult life: You are in your routine. You commute to work every morning along the same streets, at roughly the same time, to the same office. You take your lunch breaks at the same time, at the same places, and eat the same foods. Is it any wonder that the months pass with barely entering your consciousness, and definitely not your memory? Try to recall what you were up to two months ago? I bet all you remember is something that is outside of your routine..

Why sail around the world?

I can only imagine as you wake in the pre dawn, you slowly become aware of your surroundings. With wisps of dreams from a long sleep scattering from your mind you realize with mounting excitement that your dream is in fact a reality, and that the day ahead of you is your to do with as you please in the tropical paradise that surrounds you…

You look around you and allow yourself to be immersed in the purity of the moment: The boom of the surf crashing the reefs and the whisper of the gentle offshore breeze in the palms on the beach. In the foreground, the brightening sky is reflected off the oily ocean in a kaleidoscope of color, dulled in places as the offshore breeze touches down in rippling goose bumps-almost as if the ocean itself is awaking from its slumber.

EMRACE the cliche”s we say! “Carpe Diem!” – “Seize the day”, “Life is short” my favorite, and try to make an honest difference in the world.
